I'm working at slow speed...

due to the heat but managed to finish this card yesterday. I bought the lovely hand-made paper at China Blue in Totnes on my last visit to the U.K. Naomi is so pleased to be finally decorating her salon and flat that we have to visit lots of interesting places...I am not complaining, though, as she has some great design ideas.

I placed the paper on my desk and in only a few moments I had all the card, embellishments etc all laid out to match. I had not really thought about it but this is one of my favourite colours. I also realized that I have a few tops and cardi's in this colour too!!

Card was made using:
Hand-made paper from China Blue.
Card from Craft Creations.
The image is one from my friend Jo, coloured using ProMarkers.
The flowers were punched using a Woodware punch and glittered using Stickles.
Other flowers are from WOC and stash.
Sentiment is Anita's Foiled Die Cut.
The flourishes are cut with my Big Shot and the die is from Cheery Lynn.
Ribbon is from Ollie Doodles, Costa Blanca.
Pearls from Papercellar.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Ribbon Carousal Challenge - Let's Get Crazy Anything Goes.
Gingerloft Challenge - Make it Sparkle.
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #84 - Friendship.
Crafty HO's Challenge...sadly last one - Anything Goes.
